ETF demands a social dimension inside the Single European Sky in its second European Action Day on 30 January 2014
Following the call of the European Transport Workers’ Federation (ETF), Air Traffic Controllers (ATCOs) and the entire Air Traffic Management (ATM) employees are mobilising for a new European Action Day on 30 January 2014 to demand the establishment of a fair, cooperative and social Single European Sky (SES). They will hold parallel walkouts, rallies, meetings and strikes across Europe calling on the European Parliament to stop a never ending process of liberalisation and cost cutting in the ATM industry. ETF affiliates from Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, France, Hungary, Italy, Portugal, Slovakia, Sweden and UK are participating in the Action Day. On 30 January 2014, the Transport Committee of the European Parliament (TRAN) will vote on the package called SES2+ based on market principles, top-down approach and cost reductions, which would jeopardize safety and the number and quality of jobs.
